Financial Assistance Programs
Healthcare services can be a costly investment. Eligibility for financial assistance is based on financial need and is provided to patients who meet program criteria. Services include:
Assistance through the Indigent Health Care Program is available for uninsured patients whose family’s gross income is below the current poverty level established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Eligibility may be retroactive for a maximum of 90 days. Those wishing to establish eligibility and schedule an appointment for Indigent Health Care should contact the Indigent Health Care Coordinator at (830) 401-7217. A completed application for Health Care Assistance, Form 100, and the documents necessary to make an eligibility determination are required at the time of the Indigent Health Care appointment.
Patients who are uninsured who do not meet the qualifications for Public Assistance or Indigent Health Care may qualify for GRMC Charity Care. If the family’s annual gross income is less than or equal to 200% of the federal poverty level, the patient qualifies for free or discounted care (certain elective services excluded).
The Prescription Assistance Program (PAP) at GRMC helps patients receive needed prescription medications to treat chronic medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and depression.
Requirements to receive Prescription Assistance include:
- Must be a US Citizen
- Must have a low or fixed income
- Must be on long-term medication
- Your doctor must reside in Guadalupe County
- You must be able to pay a monthly $15 administrative fee
- You must be able to pick up your prescription at GRMC’s Prescription Assistance Program

While GRMC accepts most major insurances, we also understand that maternity care may not be covered. Thus, qualified, uninsured families may be eligible for this program if payment is made in full by the time of the mother’s discharge.
The plan is designed for a normal, uncomplicated delivery at GRMC and for the routine care mother and baby receives during hospitalization. The Maternity Services Pricing Plan is not offered to families with Medicaid or other maternity insurance coverage. Any special amenities or accommodations may be subject to additional fees. For more information on our Maternity Services Pricing Plan, please call GRMC Patient Financial Services at 830.401.7874.
